CIO Swift Charge 100W 3 Port USB-C Power Delivery Wall Charger G100W3C1A
The USB-C port has been on the rise for quite some time now, as it’s a more accessible port since it’s reversible, has faster file charging speeds, and it’s able to provide fast charging with Power Delivery. Power Delivery is the main reason why we’re seeing fewer wall chargers use USB-A ports, as many portable devices such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops are compatible with USB-C Power Delivery fast charging. This makes the use of USB-A ports on wall chargers, even portable chargers, obsolete.
In this review, we’re taking a look at this CIO Swift Charge 3 port 100W USB-C Power Delivery wall charger. There are many PD wall chargers on the market, but there are few that use this many Power Delivery ports, so let’s see what it has to offer.
The charging from the CIO Swift Charge Power Delivery wall charger is great, it’s one of the best charging experiences that we’ve ever had with a multi-port PD wall charger.
So, the charger has three USB-C Power Delivery ports and a single USB-A port. The first two USB-C Power Delivery ports are capable of outputting up to 65W of Power Delivery charging, the third USB-C Power Delivery port is only able to output up to 20W and the same can be said about the USB-A port.
So the USB-A port features Quick Charge 3.0 for compatible Android smartphones. The max output of this wall charger is 100W, which is perfect because this means that you can use multiple ports at the same time without charging speed slowing down.
The first two Power Delivery ports that can output 65W are meant for charging laptops, you can still charge smartphones with the first two USB-C PD ports, but if you’re looking to charge laptops the first two top ones are your best options. Our experience with charging from this CIO Swift wall charger was phenomenal.
With the first port, we charged a Lenovo Flex 5 14” laptop. The laptop can be charged via USB-C Power Delivery, and the laptop was able to charge at 35W to 40W, which is the laptop’s max charging speed.
With the other two USB-C Power Delivery ports, we charged a Samsung Galaxy Note 9, and a Google Pixel, both of which are Power Delivery compatible smartphones. Both of the phones were able to fast charge at the same time the Lenovo Flex 5 was fast charging from the first USB-C Power Delivery port.
With the USB-A port, we charged a Samsung Galaxy S6, Quick Charge compatible smartphone, and unfortunately, it did not fast charge. Likely because the wall charger already reached its max output.
In this charging situation, we were able to fast charge a laptop, and two smartphones at the same time, and have an additional smartphone charge at its standard charging speed.
In another test, we charged three smartphones, with a Samsung Galaxy Note 9, Google Pixel, and an LG G7 charging from the three USB-C Power Delivery ports. All of them were able to fast charge at the same time.

The build quality of this wall charger is great, it has a strong build that is ready for daily use and the built-in AC adaptor also feels sturdy to use.
